Grieve not, oh thou waking world,
Passing here, where I lay dreaming
In my deep, soft-scented bower,
Filled with all the joyous scheming
That occupies man’s every hour.
Stop to ponder what I am,
That which in each dream can live,
A small, golden, glowing spot,
Sleeping...waiting but to give
The spark that hopeless man forgot.
So, grieve not, thou waking world,
Not seeing where I am fast asleep,
Waiting for you to awaken me
From my slumber calm and deep
To bring my golden light to thee.

Beautiful! Well titled and well written.

You will still be invited to my bed - my dear one of 50+years - but just remember
roses are red violets are blue....I am just not a poet - like you!!!!
